ncurses-5.3: description + notes

The Ncurses (new curses) library is a free software emulation of curses in System V Release 4.0, and more. It uses Terminfo format, supports pads and color and multiple highlights and forms characters and function-key mapping, and has all the other SYSV-curses enhancements over BSD Curses.

The distribution includes the library and support utilities, including a terminfo compiler tic, a decompiler infocmp, tack, clear, tput, tset, and a termcap conversion tool captoinfo. Full manual pages are provided for the library and tools.

To avoid hiding the system Curses headers all Ncurses headers are installed under /usr/freeware/include/ncurses.

Developers intending to use this distribution for application development should be sure to read the information in FAQ 3.8.
